This year the CMA turns 20, and as such we thought it a good time to take stock and think about what we do well and what we could improve on.  Out of this discussion came the desire to shine a brighter light on the research being conducted on maritime heritage (both within the  CMA and beyond) and to offer a space within which significant developments can be discussed.  As such we agreed that we would begin an annual lecture series, singling out a key issue per year and acting as a focus for our discussions.  At the same time, it became apparent that there was considerable shared interests between research conducted within the CMA and that represented more broadly within the Southampton Marine and Maritime Institute (SMMI).  As such, we’ve teamed together to help attract a more diverse audience with the hope of seeing discussion develop in new and interesting ways.

We are very pleased to announce that the inaugural annual lecture will be given by Dr Ulrike Guérin, UNESCO Secretariat of the 2001 Convention on the Protection of the Underwater Cultural Heritage on Friday 24th March at 17.45 in lecture theatre A of the Avenue Campus, University of Southampton. Dr Guérin’s talk is entitled:
‘An ocean without history? Bringing the importance of the ocean’s history and underwater cultural heritage to the attention of the UN and of governments.’
At a time when the UK government is ever more closely aligning itself with the UNESCO 2001 convention, with formal adoption becoming a clear possibility, this talk represents a chance to hear about the value and importance of our shared cultural heritage and how it can be protected. This a public talk open to all, and we very much hope to see a diverse range of people there.
